This edition: Robert Smith, author, "Mexican New York"Tweet
Original tape date: January 10, 2006.
Who living in New York City does not feel like an immigrant in some way at some point in their lives? Doug Muzzio chats about the exploding immigration issue with author Robert Smith who recently published “Mexican New York.” What are some of the issues facing Mexicans in New York? What is the difference with these new transnational migrants that keep feet in both worlds, working in urban America while supporting families and affecting changes in their communities in Mexico? With the new technology and global economy how are these new immigrants assimilating while keeping their traditions alive? What are their goals in education? What will the future bring to both our worlds?
